That experienced depth left last week, when Shaun Hill chose to sign with the St. Louis Rams instead of heading back to Detroit. This left the Lions with Kellen Moore, who has yet to play in a regular-season game, as the only other quarterback on the roster. So what might the Lions do there?

One option would be to draft a quarterback in the later rounds -- Aaron Murray, Stafford's replacement at Georgia, comes to mind -- and the other would be to still bring in a veteran. Or both. Really, as the Detroit Free Press mentioned Monday, all options are open.
